Achieve Grammar & Writing Software

The final day to complete Achieve activities for Fall 2021 was December 10, 2021. Achieve will be available again in spring 2022.

Achieve is educational software that can help you with your grammar and writing skills at your own pace. Achieve is available online and can be counted for FYE or course credit. 

Getting started with Achieve:

  1. Enroll in the free, non-graded Tutor 001 course (Section 12411)
  2. Request an Achieve Access Code
  3. When you’re ready to start, click on the link below to log-in or register.
  4. If this is your first time using Achieve, enter your Access Code when prompted.

Working in Achieve:

  1. When you enter Achieve, you’ll be entering the Writing Support Center “course.” You may complete any of the content in this course, in any order you like. There are no grades, so there’s no pressure! 
  2. On your Achieve home page, we recommend changing the “VIEWING BY” drop-down menu from “Assignments” to “Course Content.” The “Course Content” view will give you a better view of all the units and materials that are available to you. 
  3. For each unit, we recommend doing the following: Read the introduction and study pages, then complete the LearningCurve adaptive quiz activity.

Getting FYE or Course Credit for Achieve 

One hour of FYE or course credit is awarded for the successful completion of each LearningCurve (adaptive quiz) activity. To complete a LearningCurve activity, you must reach the target score of 600 points. You can confirm you have completed a LearningCurve activity by checking your Achieve gradebook. You will receive one full point for each LearningCurve activity you complete. Achieve hours (points) are added to hours from your attendance at the Writing Support Center, and a report of your total attendance hours is provided to professors every four weeks. 

Please note: Students whose English instructors are using LaunchPad in their courses will not be able to use LaunchPad at The Writing Support Center.
